  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Student wishes for fall semester life

I am fully aware of how completely insane I am going to sound right now, but…

I want school to start. There, I said it!

Lately, I’ve really just been missing the alive atmosphere of campus, the busy class schedules and just the community I have with everyone on campus.

I realize as soon as school starts, I will dread the amount of work and effort required of me, but I’ll cross that bridge when it gets here.

Right now, I just truly miss everything about fall semester–the excitement of a new year, new people, new classes, seeing old friends, football games and constant activity.

I told my roommates how I wanted school to start and they all looked at me like a crazy person.

I tried explaining how I just enjoy being on campus, seeing my friends and always having something to do (whether that be homework or something actually fun). However, it wasn’t until we were on campus for the Pinkberry grand re-opening for them to realize what I was saying.

The frozen yogurt store was giving away free smalls with toppings to celebrate moving to The Oaks; naturally, a crowd formed.

This is when my roommate looks at me and says, “Yeah, seeing all these people makes me want to start fall semester.”

Ahh! I think we’ve cracked the code. It’s not the actual classes that I am eager for, but the people who roam campus on the daily basis: the staff and students.

I have created such a community over the past two years in Bowling Green.

I think when I planned on staying here for the summer I falsely thought I would have that magnitude of community that I have in the fall.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had plenty of community and fun this summer, but nothing beats the fall.

It just goes to show how people make places great.
